The Walls of Dakar

Aaru mbédd

Directed by Abdoul Aziz Cissé
Senegal, 2012


A rare documentary that chronicles Dakar’s unplanned, spontaneous mural frescos, produced by marginal painters, rappers and taggers, that functioned, until the city’s insurgency, as one of its rare sites for free, uncensored expression and the crucible for articulating citizenship.
